Actually the number of CRNA schools has expanded exponentially in recent years.. Globally, you cannot have a huge increase in the numbers of seats in schools without lowering the standards for admission. While it may not be the case in your particular school... and with the people you know, overall " Thems the facts". I can state with certainty that it is much easier to get into a CRNA school now than it was, say, 10 years ago. As an example: A city in the midwest went from a school turning out 8 graduates per year, to 3 schools turning out 60 graduates per year without a matching expansion of positions regionally. And there are schools graduating 140 or more grads a year... these CRNA farms did not exist just a few years ago. Anecdote does not equal data... 10 years ago students were offered large sign on bonuses, moving expenses etc. Those are now all but thing of the past.
Do some Googling on CRNA job availability.
